What We Do

Improve education and livelihood of poor rural African communities


Education is a basic human right. As such, it is one of the most important enabler to overcome poverty and building lasting livelihood opportunities. For details of our plan click on the icon.

Clean Water

Many young and elderly suffer from waterborne illness such as diarrhea due to usage of unclean water. In most places people and animals share the same source of water for drinking and house hold use.

Health Service

In Burji district of Southern Ethiopia for a population of 67,000, there is no hospitals. Instead, the community is serviced with three inadequately resourced clinics.

Rural agriculture and Development

Rural communities are subsistence farmers where they often till the same plot of land and grow the same crop with poor yield. Most of the season the farmers do not have enough farm product to sustain them year around.

Your donation of $100 will sustain a student for a month
